now things are just as bad when he started. romney worked in the debate seems like i have energy and ideas the president didn't. jenna: republican strategist mike murphy on. brad woodhouse, democratic national committee. sean spicer republican national committee. they're both campaign communications director. they're made for television. you're shaking your head. why? >> i think it was the joran van der sloot comment? jenna: was that it, brad? joran van der sloot, story? >> i was shaking my head. this notion that the president doesn't want to be reelected is craziest thing i ever heard of. in the analysis, it is funny, not worth to put on paper, if you did i wouldn't use it to wrap fish. it wouldn't be worthy of that. earlier this summer when mitt romney was off the campaign trail for exhaustion. the president was putting in 19 hour days. >> a lot of fund raisers. >> this guy, you know, this guy, is committed to this. he has got the fire in the belly. he is exhibited that every day he has been in office. look, one debate is not going to the determine the outcome of this election.
